So what did I do to this chicken fajita bowl recipe that I’ve never done before? Simply enough, I didn’t cook the vegetables. Usually I’ll add veggies to my chicken in the crockpot, in the frying pan, or on the grill.  This time I opted not to. Before I made this meal I was remembering how my previous meal prep experiences left me with soggy vegetables that really made the meal less than ideal.  I went out on a limb here to try something new, and it worked! The vegetables were a lot more crunchy, and the flavor was unbelievable!
